Re: Trouble with getting mods to work

It shouldn't be a problem for more than one mod to define the same type. I think the one with the highest UNID will be loaded last and overwrite the other(s).

Re: Trouble with getting mods to work

I think you can just copy the entity definition (<!ENTITY someEntity "0xnnnnnnnn">) from the mod with the type you want to use to the mod where you use it. Or use the hex UNID (0xnnnnnnnn) rather than the entity (&someEntity;). But then your mod will only work if the mod containing that type is also...

Re: About non-omni primary weapons without WMD

In theory, they should have slightly more DPS than WMD weapons of the same level, and better shot speed. So if you have good accuracy they might be the fastest non-ammo weapons at damaging things other than compartments and stations. In practice, the omni versions generally have higher effective DPS...

Re: Trouble with getting mods to work

That's all rather odd. Mods could prevent the player from having any powers, in which case I think pressing the key results in a "No powers" message. But I don't believe they could prevent the Enable/Disable menu from working. Are you sure you were pressing the right keys for your current keyboard c...

Re: Reactor Weight Limitation and More Reactors

It isn't a terrible idea to have more diversity in items, but I've said before in other places that there's a danger in making item balancing too realistic. Capital ships would logically have vastly larger, and therefore more powerful, equipment than can be mounted on gunships, making them impossibl...

Re: Mining 2019

If you have enough space, you can hold Enter to loot all the ore and undock, like when looting a wreck. But I agree mining is just not worth the tedium unless you're really desperate.

Re: Questions about saved games

If it's just about your personal enjoyment/testing, you can play in debug mode. This gives you the ability to revert to your last save, but makes the game ineligible to submit high scores. You can also turn off mission autosaves in settings.xml. The game will still autosave whenever you gate though....

Re: Fleet wingman behavior help please

Because all the objects are found using 'sysFindObject' and moved in the same 'block' of code for every gating there shouldn't be any problems with anyone getting left behind (he says with fingers crossed). If you don't store the ships' IDs, then if the player saves and loads during the delay, the ...

Re: Erial's starter questions

Any device that doesn't take up a slot, or takes more than one, should have a tag specifying that. Player ships used to have a built-in reactor that didn't take a slot, but they were changed years ago to come with a removable reactor that does take a slot. So unless you're using mods with multi-slot...

Re: mission status query

I think it's better to add the event to each mission so that there isn't a separate type that needs to be updated when a mission is added or modified. It's probably easiest if I just do it myself and submit a pull request to George.
